COMBINED RUN FIRST
Pegasus parkrun and the North Canterbury Athletics Club are running a combined event this weekend in a national first. The 68th Pegasus parkrun will be run in conjunction with the North Canterbury Club Championships, with runners taking aim at the 5km course records. Pegasus parkrun’s Geoff McMillan said this year has seen a much closer relationship between parkrun NZ and Athletics NZ, but this will be the first instance of a combined event. David Atkinson holds the men’s record of 16.11 minutes, while the women’s record belongs to Freya Prentice, 17.43 minutes.
